Item Description

As Peridot goes, the world's supply of gem material received a serious boost about 10 years ago when the first great gem Peridot crystals started coming out of Pakistan. This material is some of the finest color I've seen for Peridot and the sheer size of some of the gems that have come out is amazing. For the size, this is a rather intense green color for Peridot. In fact, you rarely see Peridot gems with such a rich color like this, they're usually much more pale. It's a good size stone from this area, combined with the fact that the stone is only very slighty included makes it a good gem for collectors. The cut on the stone is a "Trillion" cut.
